Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Relationship Between Marital Processes and Marital Outcomes: I sincerely want to thank the hundreds of couple who participated in this research. They trusted us with the most intimate details of their lives, and theirs is really the major contributions toward this effort. --This text refers to the paperback edition.


"Gottman has produced a delightfully well researched, sensitive study of marital processes related to divorce....Anyone who is interested in marital processes and their dynamics will like this work."

"Bringing together empirical data and insightful theory development from a 20-year research program, this volume will quickly become an essential classic for all professionals interested in marriage, and required reading for graduate students....the author has constructed a rich, in-depth volume that thoroughly explains his creative work....Every chapter is ripe with insight, solidly based empirical data, sound theory development, and suggestions for application....this volume is a major contribution to the understanding of marriage and marital dissolution processes."
Journal of Marriage and the Family

"There is a wealth of valuable detail in this book....Gottman has provided an abundance of ideas that may stimulate thought by both researchers and therapists....Marital therapists, guided by the findings, can be more alert to the trajectories their client couples are following and possibly teach some of their clients more effective communication skills that may deflect them from the path of dissolution..."
The American Journal of Family Therapy

--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
